Company Details

Update

Inflection is a Big Data platform that makes finding public documents simple and affordable.

The company has aggregated over 14 billion records, including U.S. census collections, court documents, phonebooks, business filings, obituaries, vital records, and yearbooks. Inflection makes it easy to search and retrieve records through its innovative brands, including and PeopleSmart.com.

PeopleSmart helps consumers and professionals find contact information and public records. PeopleSmart seeks to transform the public records landscape with a focus on privacy, data quality, and user empowerment.

Inflection derives competitive advantage by building applications and warehousing data in a proprietary in-house platform, called STORM. The platform approach has allowed the company to disrupt industry pricing models and quickly bring new products to market.

Inflection was founded in 2006 by brothers Brian and Matthew Monahan from a Harvard dorm room. The company was bootstrapped until 2010, at which point it raised $30 million Series A from top-tier investors Matrix Partners and Sutter Hill Ventures. It sold Archives.com, a family history website, to Ancestry.com in April 2012 in a $100 million deal. Inflection has 150 employees and is profitable.
